A WORD ABOUT SENSITIVE PERSONAL INFORMATION
THIRD PARTY SERVICES AND YOUR INFORMATION
TRANSFER, STORAGE AND SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We operate and may continue to operate servers in a number of jurisdictions around the world, so the server on which your Personal Information is used and stored may not be in your jurisdiction. Any of the third parties referenced in the "Sharing of your Personal Information" section above may also be located and/or use and/or store your Personal Information outside of your jurisdiction for the purposes set out in that section. In both instances, your Personal Information may be transferred to jurisdictions that do not have data protection laws which are substantially similar to or serve the same purpose as the laws of your jurisdiction. We will ensure that all data transfers comply with applicable legal requirements (for example, by adopting suitable data protection policies and/or contractual measures). Should you wish to know more, please contact our Privacy Officer. We use a variety of generally accepted security technologies and procedures for the purpose of preventing loss, misuse, unauthorised access or disclosure of Information – for example, we use encryption technology (such as SSL) to protect certain sensitive Information (such as Location Data) provided by you to us. Please be aware that despite our efforts, no data security measures can guarantee 100% security at all times. We do not warrant or guarantee the security of SwanChat or any information you provide to us through SwanChat. We may communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to SwanChat. If we learn of a SwanChat security breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically by posting a notice within SwanChat or by sending direct communication to you. If you have any questions regarding the security of your Personal Information, please contact our Privacy Officer.
